Forgive Us Our Trespasses

Oil and Cold Wax with Collage  12"x12"

It's amazing to me how this title just popped up in my head as the painting progressed and it started to look like the fires in the West.

Fly Away

Fly Away
12"x12" Oil and Cold Wax on Gessoboard

Interesting that these in retrospect I see that these titles, Breakthrough and Fly Away are congruent with my current desire to retire from real estate and paint!

Breakthrough Oil and Cold Wax 12:x12"
Buy Now

First day of Leslie Saeta's September 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge. This one is also a "breakthrough" for me; I've learned a new way of painting that is compatible with my real estate business. I can put a layer on, go show a house, put another layer one, make some calls, and so forth. I'm SO excited!

Trying a new process

Kathy Cousart has inspired me to try cold wax so I'm taking an oil and wax workshop for 2 days in Raleigh this weekend with Jeff Erickson. Can't wait.
 I've been trying it on my own and I'm not really sure how to proceed but it seems to be fun. Only problem so far is I have a hard time being patient enough to let a layer dry before I go on. I'm painting  scene of a goose in a pond and I think this is the 6th or 7th layer and I can see quite a few more to come. I plan to cover most of the water and just have some of the color showing. It's fun though!
